What’s next after Horizon 2020?

Date: 28/06/2017

The 2018-2020 Work Programme for Horizon 2020 is not out yet but the 9th Framework Programme is already being discussed. Horizon 2020 future successor is said to follow the current programme’s path, its priority being to ensure the EUs competitiveness:

  • Pillar 1 Excellent Science: the European Research Council (ERC) and the Marie Sklodowska-Curie Actions (MSCA) are sure assets and will very likely remain.
  • Pillar 2 Industrial Leadership: the European Innovation Council (EIC) might be part of it as some of its pilot activities will be introduced in 2018-2020.
  • Pillar 3 Societal Challenges: its content will probably be based on the BOHEMIA Delphi Survey – the report is already available. Europe’s Sustainable Development Goals will certainly be taken into account as well.
